Curfew has been relaxed in Assam's violence hit Kokrajhar district for four hours today from 10 am to 2 pm. Four people, including a child, died Friday night after fresh violence broke out in Kokrajhar. In the last ten days, a total of 10 people have been killed in the district. In July, Kokrajhar was the epicentre of sustained ethnic violence, the worst in over a decade in the state of Assam. The area is simmering again because of a new surge of hostilities between the indigenous Bodo tribals and Bengali-speaking Muslim settlers.
The administration is confident that the crackdown on arsonists has sent out a strong message and is continuing with combing operations throughout the district.
